Abstract

A model for dielectric flocculation of nondiffusive particles in a uniform electric field is proposed. Flocculation time is determined as a function of inertial and dielectrophoretic force parameters. The flocculation time for inertialess particles is calculated analytically while for inertial particles, a numerical solution is given. A diagram is shown which allows to determine flocculation occurrence for various particle parameters and operating conditions.
